The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has advised Nigerians to ensure their details in the National Identify Number, NIN, are same with the data on their application for National Passport.
The minister gave the advice on Thursday in a post on his verified Twitter handle.
Aregbesola also disclosed that many passport applicants are having serious challenges on how to arrange their names.
He wrote, “It is important also that your details with NIN sync with the data on your application. Any discrepancy will stall your application until it is corrected. The order of the appearance of the applicant’s name especially has been an albatross for many.”
He added that that his ministry had introduced tracking mechanism to help applicants monitor the progress of their application.
